Twenty-two Guantanamo detainees to be freed within days as Obama plans mass transfer of fanatics who have threatened to bomb and behead Americans

GOLF OBAMA

Obama is going out with a determination to inflict as much possible terror on America as possible.

From Daily Mail: President Obama is planning to transfer at least 22 additional Guantanamo Bay detainees out of the military detention center before he leaves office later this month, DailyMail.com has learned.

The group being released will be drawn from those held at Guantanamo – who include an accused senior al Qaeda bomb-maker, the terror group’s top financial manager, and two intended 9/11 hijackers, who have all been held in the Cuba-based U.S. detention facility for more than a decade. According to a military source briefed on the process, 22 detainees are being prepared for transfer out of the camp, also known as Gitmo, before January 20.

Although the White House has not specified which inmates will be transferred out – or which foreign countries have agreed to accept them – it has indicated that this will be a priority for Obama in his final days in office. ‘I can’t speak to any individual notifications that have been made to Congress or give you a specific preview about upcoming transfers,’ said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. ‘I think I would expect at this point additional transfers to be announced before January 20th.’

Obama will likely focus on moving the 23 detainees who have been ‘cleared for transfer’ – a group that includes the alleged head of al Qaeda’s bomb-manufacturing operation in eastern Afghanistan, the head of al Qaeda’s Tunisian faction in Afghanistan, and senior weapons trainers.

Those held in Guantanamo in recent years have been dubbed ‘the worst of the worst’ by military and intelligence officials.  But the move would come close to fulfilling Obama’s campaign promise from nearly a decade ago to close the U.S. military detention center located at the base in Cuba.

But it is vehemently opposed by Republicans and the incoming Trump administration. The president-elect has already warned against any transfers at all, meaning the 22 planned moves will be another source of tension in the transition.

Fifty-nine enemy combatants in total still remain at Guantanamo, including terror ‘mastermind’ Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, two of the ’20th hijackers’ for the 9/11 attacks, and the strategists behind the USS Cole bombing of 2000. The group includes al Qaeda henchmen from around the world who are trained in lethal military tactics – ranging from sniper assassins and rocket-propelled grenade operators, to explosives and chemical weapons experts.

The Guantanamo Bay detention center has come under significant criticism due to the indefinite detention of some prisoners, many of whom are held without official charges. Obama has promised since his 2008 campaign to shut down the prison. Although US military officials have issued reports explaining the reasons for continued detentions, many of the accusations are based on claims from other captives or from intelligence that cannot be verified in court.

Supporters of the prison say it is necessary to keep it open due to the national security threat posed by the detainees and the difficulty of compiling a traditional legal case against battlefield terrorists.

President-elect Trump pushed back on Obama’s plan to release additional detainees this week, calling it ‘dangerous.’

‘There should be no further releases from Gitmo,’ wrote Trump on Twitter this week. ‘These are extremely dangerous people and should not be allowed back onto the battlefield.’

  1. Can a psychiatrist please tell us why Obama so hates America, as well as the disorder that accounts for why so many millions of Americans elected and reelected him?

    • Dr Eowyn, you have asked a question that defies common sense. Why indeed does he hate America to such a degree . . . my only conclusion is that since he was indoctrinated as a Muslim at such an early age–he will never depart from that path.

      As far as I am concerned, if even ONE of the detainees returns to the battlefield . . . Obama should be held personally responsible, he should be stripped of his pension, and tried for treason against this nation.

      Now concerning the majority of Americans who not only elected him, but reelected him . . . STUPIDITY is rampant in this nation! I am thankful that I had a father who saw the truth of things and taught his children certain principals, that in hindsight were true and correct.

  5. According to many, BO is large percentage Arab and not black, making him naturally hate the country that gave him so much. He holds no loyalty to the country. He has a small mindedness that he is owed. That he is deserving, being such a messiah.
    He does not care what kind of danger he puts us in, he sees it as part of the caliphate and carnage they want to instill in this country.
    He does not care, but is having a massive brick fence built around his new rental home. I wonder about that deal with the owners. And he will have his armed guards for life. He does not care because he has agreed to take in 2500 of the worse of the worse from Australia, that even Australia doesn’t even want.
    It came out a few years back, that he loves spending time in his upstairs office, sitting around in his sweats and slippers watching videos over,and over. We are not dealing with a sane man here. I think he is brought out to make his prepared speeches and then sent back, out of the way.
    We all know if W had spent and done all that this man has done, there would be holy hell to pay.
    Why an emergency stoppage cannot be done to stop this travesty of danger about to be released is beyond me.
    BTW Pelois should be in jail for forging his paperwork and unleashing this danger into our country.

  6. Obama claimed his father was 7/8 Arab! But his pictures look pure Bantu. LOL! He lies about everything, even when obviously false.

    One of my great hopes is when Obama is proven “ineligible”, someone will will remember to sue Nasty Pe-lousy for certifying his eligibility. I’d like to see her and her husband broke and in Gubbermint Housing for their retirement.
    Thanks Glenn for reminding us!
